 * ReadSeq  -- 1 Feb 93
 * Reads and writes nucleic/protein sequences in various formats. 

Readseq has been updated to correct two bugs from the prior release:
  - Genbank output format in the 30Dec92 release had a variable left
    number margin.  Other software requires a fixed number margin
    and will not properly read the files from 30Dec92 readseq.
  - the 30Dec92 readseq release, for MSF format, did not allow for the
    legal use of symbols in the name of sequences.  

The readseq.shar, src/ source files and the Sun Sparc binary have been 
updated.  Binaries for other systems are not yet updated.

This program is available thru Internet gopher, as

  gopher ftp.bio.indiana.edu
  browse into the IUBio-Software+Data/molbio/readseq/ folder
  select the readseq.shar document

Or thru anonymous FTP in this manner:
  my_computer> ftp  ftp.bio.indiana.edu  (or IP address
    username:  anonymous
    password:  my_username at my_computer
  ftp> cd molbio/readseq
  ftp> get readseq.shar
  ftp> bye
